Sapper William John Lavars (1065), 3rd Australian Tunnelling Company, was a 40 year old miner from Creswick, who enlisted on 25-11-1915 in Kargoolie W.A. Killed in action 12 September 1916, in France.


We would like to add more details about this tunneller to our wiki and wondered if anyone has any information about him, or even perhaps a photograph?
